    Thumbs down Defender VS Land Cruiser

    Hello jeep lovers,

    I am confused which one to select. Brand new Land Rover Defender or 2000 Land Cruiser. Both r 5 door and almost same price range around 38 lac for Defender and 35 for LC. Purpose is to get a hard core / family jeep , good for adventurous trips of hard northern areas and some off roading events of jeep clubs. Although LC is much more luxurious, comfortable , classy and powerful than Defender but it would be 10-12 years old , so is it still comparable with a brand new Defender which comes with an year warranty. An old car frequently visits workshops and parts r hell expensive and also it consumes lot of time.
    Pl advice what to buy

    Thumbs up

    Well, This is the thing which i said before, One will speak about his own vehicle.... one thing keep in mind... yeh jo Gora sab hy na, never selects wrong thing for there own use, and every where in west, the vehicle used for safari is Land Rover........ secondly, where ever reliability is a major concern they believe in LR.... I traveled a lot on my old 92 Pajero, never stopped any where in the north or even in cholistan, doesn't mean it is better than LR, No way. otherwise every maintained and mechanically ok vehicle is the best..... I have seen Mehrans in Sharda, I have been to Peer Chanasi on Cultus in 1999, when there was no road like thing???????????????????? now whats up.
    Be nice to the ppl while going up.. you might meet them on your way down

    well for a landrover multiply the 3lacs into triple figure 3x3=9lacs
    and most of our mechanics knows nothing about a LR.....if it breaks somewhere in north then only GOD will help you.......if you are more into expeditions then go for a landcruiser....

    That is only because when it is running, nothing is as capable.

    Toyotas never break. You can go to Africa in your Land cruiser and come back. It's that reliable!

    Toyota for life!

    Dear Asad
    Both the vehicles r capable, comfortable n reliable
    The only factor I can see is availability of parts
    Toyota parts r much cheaper than LR

    Choice is urs

    Although Defenders are known for their offroad capabilities world wide, I would suggest that the Land Cruiser in Pakistan, is a more practical purchase. Parts are easily available, resale is good, most mechanics would not have any trouble working on it and lastly, maintenance of a Toyota machine will always be lighter on the pocket and easier than a Defender in Pakistan any day! Good luck

    if i was u, Defender wud be my choice any day, any time. i m in army and offcourse we have to go offroad quite a lot. trust me, i never ever take a mistu L200, JMR or hilux, cause i have experienced each and every one of them extensively, and where Defender can take me, no other of ^^^^ vehicles can, dat too, with absolute reliability and surity. Defender forever ! !

    No doubt Defender is a good 4 by 4 jeep just for off road and adventures.

    But it not for family and its shape is also not good as compared to LC.

    You may increase your budget and buy LC 2000+ model in good condition.

    Otherwise Toyota Hilux is also not a bad option....

    Go for Land Rover Defender. We had an official Defender and it was very very tough and strong. We used to bring our wheat grain on it from our agricultural lands. It worked as a tractor

    I have a Range Rover 1986, roamed from Naran, Deosai, Skardu Shimshal valley hunza and all the way to cholistan. Never even once did it break down. this is a 25 years old vehicle.

    If you maintain any vehicle it will never breakdown.
